Tupelo Honey - Raleigh
My friends were visiting me from NY and we’re such foodies that we wanted a great brunch place. This place was recommended by someone who knew the area pretty well. I must say, we were not disappointed! I made reservations and there was no wait time. I was afraid we were going to lose our spot because we were 10 minutes late, but out table was waiting for us. The ambiance, the service and the food were magnificent. Let’s just say, we are our plates clean! This was one of my faves! Try it! You won’t be disappointed.
It was a great place to meet up with old friends of hours and catch up. It was a busy day at the restaurant but we weren't pressured to leave-so nice. The service was great too!
Fantastic biscuits! Love their homemade jam, and their entree salads were so good! Two thumbs up!
Brunch at 11AM on a busy Sunday. Noise level was high, restaurant was packed. My over easy eggs were cold, the sausage cooked but barely warm, the cheese grits delicious. They tried again with the eggs, but nope, still cold. The wait staff were attentive. The kitchen totally mixed up my friend and my plates. I've never seen that before - all the right food items but on the wrong plates.
Even with that, I will go back. I like the Tupelo in Asheville and believe this chain has a good mix of Southern food decently priced for the area. I won't, however, order over easy eggs here again.
We brought friends for Sunday Brunch who had not been to Tupelo Honey before. I always check the reviews and noted that there were customers who found the service to be lacking (different complaints). We found it to be just the opposite. Our server was attentive, friendly, professional, and fun to have as our server. Would definitely recommend others to come here.
Great service. Food was good, but not great. Server was knowledgeable about menu and very efficient. App and entree came out quickly but didn’t feel rushed.
Good food but drinks are small and overpriced. The chocolate ganache cake was $9.50 for a small piece of unfrosted cake. Save your money.
Really enjoyed the evening, had a very sweet waitress and the food was delicious. Only one drawback, there was a fan making very strange noises the entire time directly above us that was driving my friends and a bit bonkers. Other than that great night with delicious food!
Service was terrible. I had to get up and ask the hostess stations for plates/napkins/silverware. We never knew when we would see our waitress again, she was never available. We had to hunt for her to ask for the bill. She was rude and just made the experience unpleasant. Our food came out cold. They sat us in the sun despite many tables available under the umbrellas. No fans were near us, and there were bees everywhere. This used to be our go to place to take out of town guests, not sure we will be back.
Use your open table app. Plan ahead it fills up quickly around dinner.
Food was good, but not spectacular. Service was attentive and friendly. Decent variety of gluten free offerings including bread for sandwiches which is much appreciated!
Food was unique. Great options. Very accommodating. Service was great. Server Megan went above and beyond. Will return soon.
Omelets and grits are awesome. Outdoor seating is very nice.
Great food and service!
Lovely, relaxing brunch spot. Good food and very polite staff. I will definitely be going back.
Decent food a little pricy but ok! Honey chipotle chicken wings were spot on
Mimosas were not very good but I guess you shouldn't expect much for a three dollar Mimosa. Our waiter was fantastic and even took care of one of our party when she had an issue with her food and went above and beyond. Food was fantastic, service from kitchen a little slow but they were busy.
We enjoyed all the entrees we sampled and look forward to returning in the future. The drink I loved the most had lavender in it. Pure perfection 😋
Tupelo Honey continued to impress us with their options (including always some good vegetarian options) every time we visit.
Food was great! Service was mediocre. Took 10 minutes for a greet and we got greeted with waters which is fine but informal if you ask me. Drinks from the bar took forever and when they hit the table that had obviously sat there and sweat in the window because half of it would be watered down. We asked for ketchup and he forgot. Just maybe they shouldn’t have such big sections if they can’t handle it. Maybe 3 table sections or 4 tables AT MOST. Food was good and I would definitely go back, but would be hestiant if I was in a hurry.
Stopped here for the 1st time prior to attending the theater. Our server, Began, was attentive without being annoying. We told him we were in no hurry and he spaced out our drinks, appetizer, and meals perfectly. The food was uniquely assembled and cooked perfectly. We would definitely recommend this place to everyone and will stop back again when we are in town.
Absolutely delicious modernized Southern fare with a cool vibe. Check out the belt-driven ceiling fans!
This was my 2nd time at Tupelo’s and I was just as impressed as the first time with both the quality of the food and excellent service. The fried green tomatoes, Brussels, and fried chicken were ridiculously good.
I love coming to Tupelo Honey near Cameron Village. The food is so delicious, fresh, local and the service is always great. Make sure to have a reservation- it is a busy place! Very worth the wait though!
Brought our Mom here for her birthday 8/27. They enjoyed the food and the scenery and out waiter Vicky. We will be returning again.
Absolutely amazing!! Customer service was great and food came pretty quickly. Our meals were delicious!! Definitely returning in the future
Great take on modern Southern food, really caring staff. This is one of my favorite places for Sunday brunch - definitely recommend getting a reservation
One of my friends and I went here for brunch on a Sunday. The food was amazing! I definitely recommend making a reservation, as it gets very busy.
I was disappointed with my most recent visit to Tulepo Honey Cafe. I had gone a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it, but this time everything seemed to fall short. The food was subpar, and everyone at my six person table didn't like their food. The noise level made it almost impossible to hear each other in conversation. Our waiter did not tend to our table well and it took a long time to even get waters filled. Getting the check took a very long time and as someone allergic to milk, I was disappointed in the lack of choices they had.
We enjoyed our meal, had great service, and a wonderful evening.
Great chicken along with everything my party ordered. Honey that came with chicken too spicey. Needed some plain honey. Biscuits were fantastic!
The honey fried chicken was utterly delicous . Pair that with a Rosemary peach iced tea and wow....you are in heaven!
My official 50 character review of this restaurant is that it was very much just "meh."
This was our first time there. I had looked at the menu on the website and it looked good but there weren't any prices listed. We decided to give it a try. We had a reservation and were promptly seated. It was pretty quiet for a Friday night but we liked that. I had the trout which was very good and my husband had the friend chicken. The portions were large and the food was tasty. The wine menu leaves a lot to be desired. There aren't many choices and I thought it was a little high to pay $13 for a glass of wine that wasn't that good. Anyway, I think it is overpriced for the casual type restaurant that it is. We spent over $80 and had no appetizers or dessert. One glass of wine, one glass of beer and two entrees. We won't be returning.
The food was good, but possibly overpriced! I would suggest signing up for their emails because they offer amazing deals, including one free entree which we were able to use!
Megan was our wonderful bartender/server during this visit. She ensured our drinks were exactly what we asked them to be and that our meals came out as we wanted. Early in the afternoon so the place was fairly quiet and pleasant. Do wish they'd fix the huge hole in the middle of the overflow parking as that was a bit rough but everything once we got inside was fabulous as always
The food was great but the service was not. Menu items were forgotten, reminders were ignored. I brought my daughter and my grandkids for their first taste of a true Southern gem- very disappointing...
Extremely noisy, prices outrageous, tables too close. Table we were offered tucked into a corner next to an exterior passage door. Too much wait staff traffic. Restaurant targeted for the trendy crowd. Food may be great but a poor value dining experience.
The manager working tonight was phenomenal! I saw a food blogger post a flight that she tried that looked delicious. So that was 99% of the reason we went there tonight. It's not something on the menu but the manager made it happen anyway and comped an appetizer. The serving food is ALWAYS amazing.
